MNP-Mobile Number Portability

did any one know about it???
any ideas about it??
tell me more about what u have known about it, and any opinion about it??

what is that?

hmm, easy saying. it is the system to help to remain ur hp numbers, but u are able to change to any network u like!!!
for example: 018 123456, it is the number belong to Umobile. but after u come to the specialist store, u are able to change to any network(MAXIS, DIGI, CELCOM), to postpaid or prepaid without changing your numbers.

MNP stands for Mobile Number Portability also represents the freedom of choice for mobile users as they will be able to switch to their operator of choice, while maintaining their current number. These facilities were first implemented in Singapore in 1997 to address the issue of businessmen and companies reprinting their business cards and company letterheads. This program is governed by Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is a new government implementation that lets mobile user move from one services provider to another without losing their number. It can be done within 30 mins at the service provider office in Miri and it’s FOC (free Of Charge). Celcom located infront Post Office, Digi located at center point 2 and Maxis located next to Boulevard. I don’t know where u-mobile office located in Miri. Only few easy steps.

  1. Choose Postpaid or Prepaid
  2. Make sure no outstanding bills for postpaid (All credit on existing prepaid will not be transfer)
  3. Make sure the mobile number is currently active
  4. Apply via filling new form at new service provider
    5 Get a new Sim Card
  5. Receive 1st sms after the application accepted
  6. 2nd sms will follow after application approve
  7. Replace new sim card and make a 1st call to activate.

can do online oso…

hmm… thank for all to share ur information

yup, digi’s customers can come to DIGI centre or the places i list as above, to change their network to DIGI.totally FREE for customers to change other network to DIGI"S network.

as for Maxis, other than Maxis Centre which placed at the BOULEVARD COMMERCIAL CENTER, u can also come to several shop to do changing to the MAXIS network!!! well, i heard is gona be 6 shops, but i not sure which shop are properly available. with rm25 charges to change to thier network.

for CELCOM, as what i know, they are able to do it at CELCOM CENTRE, and the same charges as MAXIS to change to their network. and a problem is, it take more than one day to change.

well, the office of U MOBILE is just situated at the above of NAGA LIAR nasi lemak shop, you may find it is hard to see. but for the service centre, still cannot found in Miri yet!!!

im asking only ler…

hahaha, i know… i also juz asking nia woh!!

MNP is perhaps, one of the best news for mobile users who owe “beautiful” and “golden” numbers and do not satisfied with the current services provided by the current operator. At the moment, Digi is doing well with its prepaid segment while Celcom is moving towards gaining more valuable customers on the postpaid segment.

Maxis has been doing well on the branding. However, in Sarawak, I will consider coverage as my first priority. I can online with my mobile phone using Celcom 3G with min charges of RM8 daily. Before you switch, just calculate your monthly bill, as all the telcos do have something similar to offer. I can say if I were to subcribe to any postpaid from Digi or Maxis, my bill will remain almost the same if not to be exact. The question: why change when I have got a fair deal from Celcom which has the best 3G and widest coverage in Sarawak?

MNP is giving customers the best way to remain their favorite ,or we called it as “EARNING MONEY” numbers and they are able to change to the network which ever they like.
well, more than that, i don’t know for others state, but in Sarawak, especially in Miri. Most of the people i meet , they are using DIGI. the reason they are giving mostly because it worth to use, cheaper than others operator, easier to use especially in doing upgrade(ex: open mms, wap, changing package ,paying bill). more than that, the lines are getting to improve, plus the free gift are given very strictly, no delay. so for such many reasons, they are getting loyalty to it and not thinking to change.
well, i admit. the DIGI is the only company which don’t have 3G. but most of the customers are thinking to have the worth plan than better 3G. and RM 8 per day, if 30 day then it will be RM 240. is that calling worth?? and the line of CELCOM, getting worse. one week, getting at least 3 times system down. how to say it is getting the best and widest coverage in SARAWAK??
the people in Ulu coming for MAXIS and DIGI, but don’t want CELCOM, can you imaging?

We don’t know how true the statement is… maybe you are just looking at the minority. The rural area such as Niah, Lapuk and some small towns like Lawas and Limbang, people still opt for Celcom. Undeniably, Maxis is working hard on tackling this segment by installing more VSAT and improving on the network. However, it still takes years to convince the rural folks considering the years and efforts Celcom has put in. Despite all this, we should wait and see the end result rather than believing hesay and shesay.

Like the products on the rack, whenever demand is greater than supply, the supermarket will put on the sign: OUT OF STOCK. Same theory goes to telco industry, when the demand is greater than what the telco can offer, network or system down is the most normal circumstance.

Digi is well liked for commonly known as low rate trend setter and in the telco industry is good to have such competitor. Just because it’s cheaper and with more bonuses, do we have to compromise the chance to be more technology savvy? Just by observing the mobile phone market, from 3G to 3.5G… why bother to get a 3G phone when you don’t get to enjoy the beauty of the service?

P.S. Solely based on personal opinions, you don’t have to agree or disagree. It’s just a matter on how far you want to get or how savvy you want to be with the modern facilities.
